This course is intended primarily for lab staff who analyse human samples from clinical trials but may also be relevant to research nurses and other staff who process bloods, use centrifuges and store samples.
University of Dundee clinical research labs that analyse samples from Clinical Trials of Investigational Products (CTIMPs) i.e. drug trials, must comply with the principles of GCLP and these labs will be inspected by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA).
However, it is essential that staff in other labs or areas that handle and stores human samples are also GCLP aware.
This free course, run by Dr Alex MacLellan, Quality Assurance Manager, Edinburgh Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre, is based on the MHRA's document "Good Clinical Practice: Guidance on the maintenance of regulatory compliance in laboratories that perform the analysis or evaluation of clinical trials".
If you would like to attend, or require further information, please contact Dr Valerie Godfrey (firstname.lastname@example.org) TASC QA Manager by Friday 20th April 2018.
(GCLP training does not have a renewal period but you can attend for refresher training if required.)
